    Looked at the resources in my new classroom today and have got some numicon shapes. Ive never used these before and havent got a clue what to do with them!!! Any suggestions would be really grateful
  2. Oh thanks for that I'm going on a Numicon course in September! Very useful thanks
  3. I love Numicon and wish I had more. They are great as a visual representation for each number, for 'seeing' number bonds and generally as a support for children. I have some in baskets on tables so children can use them as they wish.

    We have a whole series of numicon lessons with our kits. Our school loves them. Very visual. Great for bond, explaining addition, subtraction - well everything really.
  5. The National Numeracy Strategy for Cumbria had a document called "100 things to do with Numicon" on their site.

    If you can't find it I have an electronic copy I could email you.
  6. Hi,

    I've just seen your comment and wondered if I could be cheeky and ask you to email this to me too?

    Many thanks in advance.
  7. Hopefully, you have mail.
